Last week, I went to the southwestern corner? end? of Virginia and re-hiked some of the Appalachian Trail down there. I did it “officially” five years ago, but it’s one of the loveliest places in Virginia, and the repeat performance allowed me to take other, non-AT trails. The weather was unbelievable, if a bit hot. I did not get rained on in 75 miles but for a brief sprinkle about 2 hours into my hike (that would have been at about 7pm last Saturday).
I have pictures and little movies, and I will get to the write-up of that eventually.
I fell off the grocery receipt bandwagon, and I’m not sure when I’ll get back on. This week, I shopped ahead a a bit, just in case stuff closes due to flu. Since the beginning of March, I’ve been eating down inventory from the freezer, fridge and pantry, and now it’s looking a bit full again, but I’ll stay out of the grocery store for a while. I can pick up anything fresh (and local!) on milk pickup day when I usually buy butter and eggs. This last Friday, I bought a big bag of mixed baby greens in addition to eggs from Middletown and butter from Grandma Honey in Middleburg instead of the Trickling Springs butter I usually buy.
As for the Butterick home catalog: I’m having a hard time finding enthusiasm for the children’s clothes section. Hopefully, I’ll get to it some time, but I’m not really sure anyone else is interested either.
